The use of non biodegradable plastics, and the embracing of green renewable energy are the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the planet.
Recycling has very quickly become standard practice for all households However, we must do more, and it will intensify. Micro plastics are omni present within our oceans. Manchester University discovered up to 1.9 million pieces per square metre! The impact of plastics within our oceans can be devastating to all marine life.
Recent weather events, both home and internationally have produced extremes of heat/forest fires, and unprecedented flooding with a catastrophic loss of life, all of which the scientists are blaming on the planet getting warmer, which in turn is having a devastating impact on our natural eco system.
Everybody has to play their part, and demonstrate they are committed to making a difference, and take positive carbon reduction steps to reduce global warming.
No one in the UK waterproofing and preservation market is doing more than Wykamol by investing in Solar energy to reduce the carbon emissions from our two manufacturing sites by over 62 tonnes per year, but also taking steps to introduce both hybrid and fully electric vehicles to our fleet.
Contractors and other customers using the Wykamol range of waterproofing and preservation products can pass on this green message to their customers, safe in the knowledge that by choosing Wykamol they are making an environmental difference.
